“The Czech Nuclear Society is one of Czech key nuclear energy organizations and that is precisely why we consider our membership in it as critically important. Czech companies and institutions with rich experience of using our technologies are members of this society that serves as a strong basis for further work”, - noticed Zdenek Shima, Director of Check branch of JSC “Rusatom Overseas”.
 
“The Czech Nuclear Society carries out educational mission on spreading knowledge and objective information in the field of nuclear power engineering.

“It’s not just the point that the WWER technology is used in all units of the nuclear power plants “Temelin” and “Dukovany”. Currently Rosatom is one of the leading companies that implement innovative projects in the field of nuclear power. The expert community will get the possibility to find out more about such technologies by virtue of “Rusatom Overseas” entry into Czech Nuclear Society”, - said Miroslav Kovalets, Vice-President of the Society.
 
Two affiliates of Rosatom – JSC “Atomstroiexport” and EDB “Hydropress” – bid for the tender for further construction of NPP “Temelin” and are members of Consortium “MIR.1200”, the leader of which is Czech company SKODA JS. “By virtue of cooperation with the Czech Nuclear Society we will be able to strengthen interaction with Czech experts and general public representatives concerning the project of construction of a safe and effective nuclear power plant, proposed by Consortium MIR.1200, the construction of which can have positive effect for the whole Czech industry”, - added Leosh Tomichek, Executive Vice-President of JSC “Rusatom Overseas”.
